Whether you're stumbling across this page by accident, or if you're trying to remain updated on my trip, please know that my intention is not to bore you. I, Zoe Braunstein, have traveled 5,899 miles away from my little home in North Potomac, Maryland to Hod Hasharon, a small town located just outside of Tel Aviv, Israel from November 30th, 2010- January 25th, 2011!

I'm spending my time here studying at the Alexander Muss HIgh School in Israel- a program that lets you live and learn in the land together. We have lessons sitting atop Mesada, lunches where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found, and debates at the Western Wall. The environment created here is magical, and along with 47 other teens from across the U.S., we're making our way through Jewish history with Israel as our textbook.

Stay tuned for updates by scrolling over the page entitled "Blog" and clicking the latest link. I'm doing my best to post about 3-4 times a week regarding the trips we're taking (sorry for not talking much about the days in the classroom, it's just that they don't have as great of stories!). Feel free to comment or email me, and I'll do my best to respond! I have pictures up on Facebook for your viewing, and I'll try to get some on this website, but the internet here is not good, so they take a while to load.
